My findings about my interview with the mother of the child, I can say that the child was being care by
her family to the point that she was able to build a good physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.


I therefore conclude that the learning of the child begins at home. At home the child learns values, works
and his cognition slowly developed. However, school plays a vital role in molding the child. Sine school is made
for the purpose of developing cognitive aspects of the learner. As the child goes to study from pre-school until
senior high, she spends much time in school rather than at home. So, the total development of a child depends in
school as well as the teachers and instructors or instructresses, which are the most important agents in school that
bears and impart knowledge and values with the learners.


I do recommend that each teacher must be diligent, resourceful and patience in handling the learners.
He/she must use varied strategies in order to catch the interest and attention of the students to focus on the lesson.
He/she must bear in mind the knowledge that the learners get rather than the salary receive. For the parents, they
must be responsible in guiding and disciplining their children, they must be open with them. They should always
ask them about their studies and give encouragement to focus and study hard sp as to become successful in their
lives. The most important is the role of the learner, they me be always compliant and dutiful. They must ensure
to themselves that they are motivated to learn and participate since they are responsible of their own learning.


When I conducted an interview to the parents of the learner, I was able to know that the style of parenting they
have on their child is authoritative type in which this type of parenting the learner is self-governing but there are
still rules present that limit him in his play, actions, and joining with friends.

As what I have learned in Child and Adolescent Development the factors that I am going to contribute to
the development and over – all adjustment of the learner in school are: first, it contributes how the learners are
nurtured by his parents, their financial setting, and cultural background of the family unit.
“Education begins at home” This quote helped me in finding and understanding the behavior of the learner.
What he did in school reflects how she is nurtured and reared by his parents at home. One of these effects for
instance, if the learner act and possessed misconduct in the classroom, then what he did especially when it is a
serious type then surely his parents are expected to visit the school and consult for the performance of his child
to his adviser or teacher.


When I was still a boy until this present, I observed that the style of parenting I have is authoritative type
of parenting. Wherein my parents are always in authority and rules are given, yet they are so gentle and loving.
They demand and respond to us equally. I am not restricted to all the things that I want to be involved in, especially
in choosing my peers. Even though sometimes they are strict, they have clear reasons behind it. And they make
us to understand the consequences of their behavior. And this type of their parenting style affects us positively.
As a child, a buddy, and a student, I’m so sociable and so friendly; I have a lot of friends. I do not lack involvement
with other people. And I do not feel any deprivation of social life.

A way I can establish home-school collaboration with parents is by being acquaintance to build rapport
and gain information from them. Simple small talk, about weather, traffic, a local event, any of those hundreds of
things that adults use to make contact with one another, can be appropriate at the beginning of our relationship.
But eventually it is necessary for me to talk about the child. An inviting question could be, “What has my student
said about his school activities?” It would be necessary to ask open-ended questions in order to get the parents
talking about their child and to share information that may help me with the student in school.

In order to have a good working relationship with the parents, I need to think like one, to genuinely send-
off caring and concerned messages when speaking about their child and to create a welcoming environment to
their guardians. Positive, honest and clear communication is suggested as the foundation to building personalized
relationships with parent where each of us understands and respects each other’s perspective. Working together
toward shared goals with shared power, this collaboration can require ongoing planning, development and even
evaluation. This can mean soliciting support from the school for needs like release time to meet up with
parents/families in the community or development of a family support area in the school.

Together, the parents and I can discuss expectations for their child’s achievement and our respective roles
in helping the child meet these expectations. As part of an educational institution in the future, I can develop
programs to promote effective home-school- partnerships that support positive academic, behavioral and social
competencies for all students in my school. I’ll look to be engaged in efforts to increase mutual respect,
understanding, caring and flexibility among families and the school community.

Parents’ role on the other hand will involve regular communication with me about their child’s progress,
encouragement of leisure reading with their children, participation in school functions, athletics, and other
extra-curricular activities, monitoring homework completion, frequent communication with their children about
academic and behavioral expectations and progress. They can also participate in school as committee member
or volunteers.
